Wade Accuses Murray of Acting Like a Drama Queen

Two of the most famous figures in British tennis are firing salvos at one another after Andy Murray hit back at former Wimbledon champion Virginia Wade after she accused the world no.4 of acting like a 'drama queen'.

“I have sympathy that Murray’s back is bad but I have more for the other guy as you cannot play against someone who is being a drama queen,” said Wade. “I don't think it is intentional, but he feels so sorry for himself he has no control over the fact he is not acting in an adult way."


Isner Admits to Being Homesick

Homesick John Isner blames one month in Europe for the poor form which left him a French Open loser in the second round to Paul-Henri Mathieu. Now the North Carolina country boy has cut his losses and headed home, with his arrival in Britain for the grass season unknown.

"I never felt comfortable. It's been like that since I've been in Europe, really.  I don't know, slump, I guess you could say.  I don't know what it was.  I just didn't play the right way. I'm going to go home, I don't even want to think about tennis right now," said the North Carolina player.
